If you get white it needs to have stripes. It looks like a clean slate begging for a splash of color.

I have had white vehicles forever. Bought the SIM camaro (harder to keep clean). By far white is the easiest color to keep clean IMO.

Dust shows the least on white, so it looks "clean" longer after a wash. Dark colors are the worst.

And if you miss a spot when drying it -it doesn't show water spots. I love mine. I get lots of compliments on it. Most people say they didn't think white would look good until they saw mine with the black rallies.

Saw a white one with black stripes the other day,That car looked great. I wasn't sure how it would look until I saw it in person. I must say it is a great color choice.

This gets me thinking about 2 cars I had in the mid 80's the first was a Grand
National that only came in black,I would spend 4 hours detailing and it was beautiful to look at but it did get dirty pretty fast,second car the Monte Carlo SS in white that car looked really good clean and took longer to look dirty again,I just went to see an RS this morning Summit White with Black stripes and I just might try to get it by this weekend,I was wanting a 2SS,but this will be for my wife.Anyway can't lose with white and those IOM stripes.

When I pick up a second Camaro it's between either white or CGM. White does need stripes.

It is the easiest to keep clean IMO. I have had all colors of Camaros form red to black and White is by far the easiest to keep clean at least looking clean. Black and Dark Blue are the hardest. Now when the colors are clean they pop more than white so you have to have stripes on theis big beast to off set the plain. I have a whit 2ss w/RS, sun roof and black stripes. I also recommend the RS for the body molding color, I have seen the black and I personally do not like it. Ether way you go any color this thing is an eye catcher and you will have a blast in it.

I originally wanted silver cause my 95 T/A is silver & it hides dirt & looks clean longer, then I saw the Camaro in white & loved it. Then I saw one in black with orange rally stripes & inferno orange interior & I loved that color combination too. But practicality is taking over & I will buy my Camaro in white with orange rally stripes & inferno orange interior which is also a great color combination, easy to live with and it really stands out.
